As part of the Rethinking Plastic programme at Dutch Design Week 2020, Indian designer Sachi Tungare creates an aesthetically pleasing homeware collection that embraces a rich multi-colour palette. The "swirly vessels," as described by Dezeen, are made out of discarded cigarette butts. This is a crucial point for sustainability design as cigarette butts are one of "the most commonly littered items in the world." About the project, Sachi Tungare shared that "[she] had people come up to [her] to ask why [she] was doing this, which led to conversations with people of all ages and the conclusion that awareness about this issue is seriously inadequate."
The chic homeware collection is titled Jugaad. Each object is made out of cellulose acetate from 300 cigarette filters.
